Chorley company has fundraising licked!

Steve Ryder, of Chorley company Duoline Access Ltd, visited patients on the Cancer Centre’s in-patient Ribblesdale Ward to gift £200 to ward housekeeper Christine Ryan for her stock up on a freezer full of lollies and ice creams.

Not only do the treats help to reduce a temperature, chemotherapy can leave some patients with a metallic taste in their mouth while radiotherapy can cause a dry mouth and throat so sucking on a lolly or ice cream can be helpful counters to both treatment side-effects.

Sue Swire, our fundraising manager, said: “We are very grateful to Duoline Access Ltd. I met Steve at a business networking event at which I was giving a presentation on Rosemere Cancer Foundation’s work.

“I explained how we funded projects costing more than a million pounds such as the robotic surgical system and the equipment for Surface Guided Radiotherapy at Rosemere Cancer Centre but how often smaller projects such as funding massage and ice lollies and ice creams were just as appreciated by patients. Immediately afterwards, Steve came forward with his offer to fund our frozen treats.”

Thank you so much, Steve – these treats make a real difference!
